Shab-e-Barat observed with religious fervour

The holy Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, was observed across the country on Sunday with religious fervour.

According to Muslim belief, Shab-e-Barat is the night when Allah arranges the affairs of the following year. On this night, Allah writes the destinies of all creations for the coming year by taking into account their past deeds.

Muslim devotees offered special prayers and recited from the Holy Quran seeking divine blessings for the wellbeing of mankind. They passed the whole night offering prayers.

Bangladesh Television, Bangladesh Betar and private TV channels and radio stations aired special programmes while newspapers published articles highlighting the significance of the night.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday greeted the Muslim community in the country and elsewhere across the world on the occasion of Shab-e-Barat.
